Julianna was the human servant of Asher and part of a ménage à trois with Asher and Jean-Claude. The three of them left the Vampire Council and Belle Morte for the safety of Julianna. They traveled for twenty years, but when Jean-Claude was away from them, Julianna and Asher were captured by the Church. While Asher was disfigured by holy water, she was burned to death for witchcraft. Jean-Claude arrived shortly after to rescue Asher, but was to late for Julianna.
For the next three hundred years, Asher never forgave Jean-Claude for failing him and Julianna.
